depends on the meaning of temporary.

No. The contents of cache may be valid, and while it's being used, it may
not be cleaned for a long time, independently of status of apache server.

those files represent http/cache objects, they are copies of objects on the
web. If cache user fetches image from a page, and the image is often used
and does not change, there is no need to clean it, ad it would be soon
re-fetched from websever and stored again (probably on the same place)...
